"Then, too much oil is NOT as bad US too lltllo." Indications nro that the tiro industry Is on the threshold of a great development—-the so called "balloon" tire. In this newest of Improvements it. is likely that tho cord construction will be utilized because It baa proved its durability and reliability. A much larger section and thin walls probably will make It possiblo to ride on far less air pressure, thua giving greater protection to the ear through reduction in vibration and at the same time affording much more comfort to passengers. All of these things will be brought about possibly without sacrificing economy. AU of the larger tire manufacturers are conducting experiments on this tiro of greater r:rof-".s section but smaller diameter. It Is difficult to express In words the comfort derived from riding on these velvety tires. Irregularities of the road surface are toned down so that they are almost imperceptible while driving at ypeods that -would almost throw the passengers out cit tho seats on the present oord tire. It in not possible, of course, to do away with the upfl and downs of tho road j but on the so callod "balloon' tire eyerything is so cushioned that the Knock a and jolts are dissipated before they ever reach the car. Probable Sires. While the developments of this new tire have not progressed to a. point where it is possible, to state all of tho sizes which will be employed. It Is quite likely that popular sizes will bo 28x4, 30xf>, a2x(i, and 34x7 Possibly tho maximum air pressure to be ear- Vied in theae tires will be 35 pounds with a minimum of approximately 1*5 poundR, all of which la governed by MOTOR PRINCESS," NEW FERRYBOAT FOR AUTOMOBILES, LINKS UNITED STATES WITH LOVELY VANCOUVER ISLAND tho diameter ami tlijj weigliO to ~bo carried l'er tire. A series of questions ariae usually from tho consumer about the effect of larger tires on tho car operation One of the principal of these questions is that dealing with fuel consumption. In soueral the large diameter tire consumes no more nor no less fuel than the high pressure pneumatics. This statement is based upon test tires of various sizes which havo been run over thousands of miles at the Miller Rubber Company, lu Akron, Ohio. It has been found true that with a larg-o cross section tiro the car coasts as freely and accelerates practically the same as with tho high pressure, pneumatics. Evidence Is not positive but the indications are that there may be a very slight difference In the pos­ siblo speed to be attained. Steering No More Difficult:. Another question" that arises concerns steering. This Is a logical question because nearly all motorists have found steering a little more difficult with their front tires slightly under- j i Inflated. laboratories show that road \ 't contact o£ tho largo cross section tire'! is practically twice that of the high;air pressure pneumatics. Under such conditions it in natural to find steering a little difficult nt low speed's. However, tinder average driving conditions thlf is scarcely noticeable. On the other hand, this greater road contact is found of distinct advantage in crossing street car tracks. Tho wheels arc not deflected in making the cross over, even though the wheels may be run almost parallel with tracks. It is found that braking Is a far simpler proposition on the larger Urea ' than on the high pressure pneumatics. | A great road contact which brings ; into play more of the anti-skid devices j necessarily reduces the possibility of skidding. On wet pavements with the | .brakes In good condition and equal-; ized it is almost impossible to make i these tires skid. The same is true, on • snow and ice, although In applying] the brakes for a sudden stop the driver is confronted with tho possibility j of locking the wheels which is true of the high air pressure pneumatics. Whilo these tires aro still in the experimental stags, it is not unlikely that they will he In pretty, common use within the next two or throe years. PUSH EXPORTS OF U. S. CARS Veteran Auto Maker Placed in Commerce Department to Aid Trade Development. Washington, July 14—Assistant Secretary of Commerce J. Walter Drake, who has boon charged wlth~the duty of encouraging American export business In general, but with a particular reference to automobile products, is a native of Michigan and Is 48 years of age. He was for many years chairman of the export committee of tho National Automobile Chamber of Commerce, which it ^as hold particularly fitted him tor tho job as assistant secretary of commerce. For many years he was chairman of the' board of the Hupp J VVAIT6Q DOAkfB Motor Car Company and was a. leader in advancing American automobile trade nbroad by bringing about intelligent co-opersition Parts of 7 Makes \^ In Bus Owned By a Nickerson Man Chns. Potter of tho Potter Garage at Nickerson has assembled whafmlght be called n cosmopolitan automobile. This car Is eom- posod of parts from seven different makes of cars, Tho various partB were taken from the very early models of each make and the fact that Mr. Potter has driven his car ovor 5,000 miles with only a little more than $4.80 for repairs proves that all the parts were well made. The chassis was taken from an old Chevrolet which had been dismantled. The motor is of tho Henry Ford variety, while the steering gear and hood wore formerly standard parts of a Buick The,wheels were first used on a Maxwell, and tho upholstery was taken from an old Sellers car which was manufactured In Hutchinson. The cur has a Maobaum top. The tire carrier was taken off of a Brlscoo car but tho body was designed and -made by Mr. Potter. Woman as Engineer. Boston: Miss Kathorine Shea, honor student of Barnard College, will enter Ihe Harvard School of Engineering In tho fall. Miss Shea is specializing In electrical engineering. Tho used car Junk man in going to have his Innings yet! That will come when we havo moro automobiles on tho streets and highways than nro needed to accommodato our population. In other words, when tho automobllo market will be saturated. Some authorities put this saturation point at 20,000,000. There aro 12,000,000 motor vehicles in use today. At tho present rate of increase the 20,000,000 mark ought to be readied In loss thnn five years. Then will come "the day" for tho nuto junk man. Even today his Is not a losing business. Since 1S!»9, statisticians say, 3,000,000 cars havo been Junked, out of a total production of morethan 111,000,000. But this is low compared with tho added annual production of motor cars. Service Essential. With no more new cars to sell to new prospects, however, each new automobile produced will mean an old one junked. There will bo no resales, under this system. Instead, service will bo the chief business of automobile,dealers, and a car onco bought will be retained by the original purchaser until it Is actually ready for the junk heap. Thus will tho perplexing uaod car situation be settled. Already signs of this solution exist. Some of the higher class automobllo manufacturers and dealers refuse to take in used cars, 83 part payment for tho purchase of their new cars. Some have gone so far as to refuse to sell a prospect's used car, if ho consented to the purciiaso of a new machine. Plan Scrapping. The report ,s current that a few of tho high-priced car manufacturers have grouped together ami agreed to scrap a proportionate amount of their used cars monthly. One out of every five is the reported proportion. In the ond, however, the junk man will get them all. Or npaiiy all, for some will ho dismantled By the farmer for farm machinery, while others will bo burned or destroyed by their owners for tho insurance. | But even those wrecked at railroad j crossings will not escape the Junlc j heap. When tho "Motor Princess" goes touring she carries 60 automobiles With her, and her broad highway 1B water, not land. The "Motor Princess," just built by the Canadian Pa- clfblc railway, is tho firm specially oOMtructed automobllo ferryboat In tho world, und a new floating link in tie ohain or friendship binding in the United Btates und Canada together- Motorists bourd her, 50 curs at a time ut BeUinghani, Wash., cross tho Gulf of Georgia to Sidney, Vancouver Island, tour wonderful roada to jr farther Th<:u;-;and Wonderhud." Uetilniing to they again cross the Culf of the "Charmer" or "Patricia," two feryboats in rnjtilar service, to Vancouver, then speed back across the lnleniational boundary through Blaine's famous pence arch und aiont; the Pacific highway to Bellingham, having completed a land and water circuit unsrpuassed in scenic beauty. Last year IS,000 automollints took the "Princess" steamern front Seattlo to Victoria and Vancouver, and now that the "Motor Princess" Is at their Bervlce even morn will on the gas" along the -Mulahat Drive und the Island Highway north of Victoria, as well as the Marino Drive and many other splendid roads In Vancouver, Greater Vancouver lias a population of about 2JO.00O and has many attractions, Including Stanley park, covering 1,000 acres and famod for its big trees, Caplluuo and Lynn Canyons und English Bay bathing boch. Both Victoria anil Vancouver havo excellent golf courses which welcome many thousand* at visitors, summer and : THE MOTOR, y winter. At Victoria, capital of British Columbia, are the Btately parliament buildings but a stone's throw from the ivy -covered Empress hotel, tho astrophysical observatory containing ono of the world's largest telascopes, Butchart's wonderful sunken gardens and beautiful Beacon HID park, Malahat Drive, starling at aea level, ascends for 1,250 feet above the- blue waters of Saanich Arm, joining tho Island highway, openB the way to lakes and streams full of fighting trout and big s'.imon. The Chticknnut Drive, near B«llinghaiu, is auothor picturesque, motor road. Forty miles from B'jillnghain is Ml.

Diesel engines and there ato ample Observation and smoking rooms, etc., for the comfort of passengers during the three-hour, trip between the State» and Cahadu, AUTO NOTES The motorist who mot with an accident telephoned from a farm house to the nearest police Btatlon; "Please send help. I have turned turtle." "You have applied to tho wrong place." said the well-trained police officer, "you should go to tho aquarium." -The Davis-Child Motor Co. is having difficulty in securing sufficient delivery of Ford cars to supply the demand. Many orders have been fjiven for curs which caanot be delivered at tho present time. A largo number of tho cars havo boon sold to ex-service men who are depending on their bonus money to complote the payment for their cars. Frank Fritcher of Holsiugton has invented a new stylo carrier for spare auto tires that is so simple and works very well. Tho tire is placed on a rlra that la expanded by a lever and then locked with a padlock. It is thief proof and has no chains, straps or bands which tend to wear holes in the tire. The automobllo repair and painting business is better thau usua.1 for tho harvest season; according to Tip Scales' of the Sealoy Service Station, who hag no trouble in leaping his large force of auto mechanics, top makers and auto painters busy. M. C. Hartzell of tho H and D Auto Tire Supply Co. reports that the scope of the Hutchinson News as an advertising medium, was greatly increased In his estimation Monday, when he : recelvod a telegraphic order for two 32 l>y 4 Oldfleld tires from Veteran, Wyo.
